Block the IP of the selected country in Firewall
Firewall should be able to block the IP of the selected country. I have a lot of traffic from the IP 5.10. *. *
As an alternative option, you can configure GeoIP protection using nginx GeoIP module https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/obsidian/administrator-guide/website-management/websites-and-domains/extended-website-management/plesk-for-linux-setting-up-ip-geolocation-for-a-website.80011/
Please let us know what you think about it.

It would be a nice extension allowing to block selected countries as needed (especially US where a lot of sniffing Proxies/VPNs seems to be located).

Yes me too, the answer is Geo blocking, I've just requested this an extension
Peter Techy commented
I'd like to block Russia and China from visiting my site, I believe Geo blocking is the solution, unable to find a Geo blocking extension in the list
This is a must now, getting lots of spam from certain countries

I agree… this is very much needed.
Plesk, IMHO, it's about time... Security, is more and more important every day that passes.
The strong proliferation of attacks to my (and others) servers needs an immediate answer - please provide this feature.
On linux just switched to Juggernaut extension and I m very happy with it !
This feature is a necessity.
Thanks @IgorG for the link in Plesk forum and @Rafal for the great idea.
Wow, so many supporters.
When do think it will be realized (not exactly, only in months or seasons)?
True, Juggernaut does so, however for a heafty $100 a yaer. This task should nit cost that.
Juggernaut Security and Firewall extension has this feature for Linux users:
Re BitNinja, please also note the heafty price it comes with... $300 a year, as a Plesk extension.
Would BitNinja remove the uage of the Plesk built-in FireWall IPTables and IPSet, as it requires their usage:
What does the non-pro version provide?
And, is the Plesk installation of the extension reversable exactly to pre-installation configuration
(for example Plesk FireWall manual rules)?
Use BitNinja. Works well with Plesk. We use them to block entire countries from our servers.
Idea 2013 and now 2021. yet not implemented. Plesk becoming hopeless for me.

Block 22.214.171.124 - 126.96.36.199 = 65,536 IPs. Is not a practical solution, china for example has 356,936,737 IPs. Even just blocking the IPV4 either, many attacks we receive come from IPV6 from Dubai for example.
spams comes from all over, not only from 64K IPs...
If you block the ip
Your server is protected.
